Better than I hoped.

Great prices on 1/8" shock cord . Bought white as it's much easier to see in low light conditions for adjusting hammocks and quilts.

Love This Store, The Material Selection is Awesome

I've been using the materials from this store for footwear design projects. Love the selection. I'm using the ripcord as elastic no-tie laces for some Nike ACG Mountain Fly Lows and they look fabulous. Could not be happier. :)

Thanks for the great review! This sounds like an awesome use for shockcord. We love modifying gear to make it our own. Thanks again Stephen!

Just what I needed

Prompt delivery. High quality shock cord. Less expensive than buying the replacement shock cord from the tent manufacturer. My tent poles are springy again and ready for my next trip!

We're glad you found just what you were looking for and that your tent poles are springy again! Enjoy!

Fast shipping, good quality fabric

I bought "HyperDRY 850 FP Goose Down" and "0.66 oz MEMBRANE 10 Taffeta Nylon - Blaze Orange" first here to make a duvet, very light and comfortable. When I saw the "projects" on the website, some people made tents, referred to the materials they bought. So I bought the materials to make a 2-person tent supported by hiking poles. I went to Backpacking used once, lightweight less than 2 pounds very satisfied.
Thanks to the Ripstop website for all the information on the material, which gave me the courage to complete my work as an inexperienced person.

Thank you so much for your review Min, we truly love to hear that! It sounds like you've jumped right into the world of MYOG. Be sure to tag us on social media to share your 2-person trekking pole tent!
